In Corfu today, the big event was the annual Winterfest, which includes vendors selling and demonstrating various wares, live music, outdoor hockey and snow play, and a K-9 demonstration featuring Deputy Chris Erion and his dog "Destro."

Players had to keep clearing snow away from the ice hockey rink in order to keep playing.

Destro alerts on a "bad guy." If Erion gives the command, Destro will let a person know he better watch it. The "bad guy" was played by a Corfu police officer.
